Last Leg to Mickey’s House

Kate was very excited about going to Mickey’s house.  Beka would always say Minnie’s house.

We left around 9:30 taking back roads to our next camping spot.

We stopped for lunch at 11:25 at Nelson County Visitor Center in Virginia.

Hand Surgery

Just wanted to let everyone know that I am having hand surgery tomorrow on my left hand. It could be up to 3 months before I am totally recovered. I had it done on my right hand before we left Alaska. Anyway the point I am getting to is that I will try to post from time to time while recovering but I am not very good at pecking the keyboard. I learned to type on a electric typewriter with no letters or numbers on the keyboard. I really appreciate this because I can carry on a conversation, watch tv or type whatever without ever looking at my fingers. The bad think is that if I have to hunt and pick I have no idea where the letters are. My fingers just play the keyboard like a piano.

I can still process the photos I have taken lately for the blog, so that is a good thing. I bet if I asked really nice I might to even get my loving husband/proofreader to type for me. Or maybe I need to check into one of the programs where it types for you. Now that might be fun to try. I bet it would be a laugh to see what words it comes up with. I believe I might go research that right now.

Stay safe out there!

Thanks for stopping by.

Getting Things Done

Well life does still go one even with Covid-19. The yard still has to be mowed. I mentioned in my last blog that we had to buy a lawnmower. We had a beautiful day, so it was time for David to get out and mow the yard which was getting a little deep in places.

Life During Covid-19

What have you been doing while you are confined? I am glad that we don’t live in an apartment but our own home. We can hang out in our back yard when it isn’t raining. I am not complaining about the rain because it has really made our yard green. This meant we better go buy a lawn mower. We got a used one while using social distancing.

David picked up the sticks from the backyard with the help of Harrison.

Key Peninsula

After we got the girls on the bus to school David and I decided to drive into Purdy and walk along the beach by the bridge.

That’s right the name of the town is Purdy, Washington. My son, Cade, was telling me that when he was looking for a house he saw an ad that said Purdy house. This might be the place I want that must be owned by a hillbilly like with his purdy (pretty) house. Anyway it wasn’t the house for him but if you would like to know more about Purdy check out this link

LightBox

I had been wanting to try doing some photography with a lightbox. I got one back in at the end of February for my birthday. The last few days I keep telling myself to set it up. I finally did today.

Here are some photos I took with just things I found around the house.

Hanging Out

David’s glasses had broken in the accident, one of the lenses shattered and the ear piece was broken beyond repair. Dan went by the house to get his other pair and Heather FedExed them to us at Sarah’s. We got to stay a few days longer and visit our granddaughters. I have always said that everything happens for a reason. If David’s accident happened because

Christmas Finally

I had the most wonderful Christmas this year. Four of my five children were here for Christmas and 8 of my 12 grandchildren were home. Then Heather also had her in laws and her brother in law at her house.

We had a gathering at our house on Christmas eve. We opened a few presents then with my grandson, Rickie, because he was working on Christmas day. The rest of us got to open one package which was new pj’s that Grandma got for everyone.
